Enjoy a one night only performance of C.S. Lewis Onstage: The Most Reluctant Convert. Award-winning actor Max McLean presents this highly-acclaimed theatrical portrayal of Lewis’ journey from atheism to faith Sunday April 14, 2019 at 4 p.m. at the BJCC Concert Hall. Theater Maniasays McLean delivers an “uncannily spot-on performance!” The Chicago SunTimes calls it “Bristling, Provocative, Highly Entertaining and Highly Recommended!” And The Weekly Standard writes “C.S. Lewis Onstage delivers something truly novel in modern theater: a story about an immensely creative mind arriving at the threshold of faith… a truthful, richly textured and witty account of religious conversion.”
In The Most Reluctant Convert, adapted exclusively from Lewis’ writings, McLean inhabits Lewis from the death of his mother and his estranged relationship with his father to the experiences that led him from vigorous debunker to one of the most vibrant and influential Christian intellectuals of the 20th century. “We’re thrilled to bring our latest production to Birmingham,” said McLean, who adapted and co-directed Convert. “C.S. Lewis wrote more than 30 books that have sold more than 200 million copies, making him arguably the most influential religious writer of the past century. In The Most Reluctant Convert, we visit the events that led to his conversion.” McLean is founder and artistic director of New York City-based Fellowship for Performing Arts, which produces theatre from a Christian worldview presented in leading performance venues nationwide and created to engage diverse audiences.
